About Your Visit

about-your-visit

Dr. Kristy Prouse MD, FRCSC on the principles of healing.

What to expect from your first visit.

Your comprehensive medical history will be reviewed by your IHH certified practitioner trained in Dr. Prouse’s methods. Appropriate investigations will be organized based on these findings. You will also meet your Patient Care Coordinator to ensure an understanding of how to complete your investigations and to review communication with the Institute for Hormonal Health. Expect to be at the Institute for a little over an hour.

Your second visit.

At this second visit, your IHH certified practitioner will review your test results in detail so that you have an understanding of your particular hormonal imbalances. An individualized treatment plan will be formulated and tailored to your specific needs to include involvement of members of our integrative health team that will be of benefit to you. Each member of the team is a hormone specialist within their field and each addresses various aspects of a hormonal imbalance (see team member bios under “Your Team”). You will meet with your Patient Care Coordinator who will help you summarize and implement your treatment program. In addition, you will receive your investigation results, as well as scientific papers (for both you and your family doctor) supporting the treatment plan for your hormonal issue.

Third and fourth visits.

In the first year of treatment, depending on your treatment plan, a follow-up appointment is typical every three or four months to review your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan. Of course, should you need to see any of your practitioners sooner, then simply email or call the Institute and we will be happy to make these arrangements.

Between appointments you will have direct access to your Patient Care Coordinator via email or phone to help resolve any questions you may have, and to determine the need for additional visits.

It is expected that you will continue to see your family doctor and/or specialist(s) for non-hormonal issues. To request an appointment, please see the top of the site or click here.
